Derek Nakamoto is an Asian-American Musician who competed in American Ninja Warrior 4(his first time on American Ninja Warrior) and he beat the qualifier and placed 8th, then he cleared the Semi-Finals fast enough to make the top 15 despite struggling on the Soritatsu Kabe. In Las Vegas Nakamoto cleared Stage 1 with the fastest time and in Stage 2 he kept up his pace, but he fell on the Metal Spin when he gripped the rope with his hands above his head. In American Ninja Warrior 5 it is rumored he failed the Hang Move, the 3rd obstacle after the Sextuple Step and Tourenta .
